~"Dear Jesus, Please help us!"~

~Little Mary kneeling down. (Please excuse the "bed head". =)~

(Cousin Nina, My Moma informed me of the physical needs of your parents...and I'm praying for y'all! =)

Well, I'm not a preacher, but I have had something on my heart that I want to share.  A minister was speaking to us in prayer meeting this week and mentioned the verse: 
Mat 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 
It reminded me that we Christians must live as careful as we can.  I believe the 2nd coming of Jesus is very near.  I want to live ready.  The devil would love for us as the Holiness movement to get busy doing GOOD things but not taking time to draw near to God and read and hide His Word in our hearts.  When our family gets to come back to the USA...It scares me when I see the slight changes in some of our dear friends.  Carelessness in the way we are dressing, in our music, etc.  Oh, may God help us each one to be sooo careful to follow God's Road map to Heaven.  God wants a peculiar people.  A people who are "Set Apart"...not ones who are trying to see how close we can get to the world.
Jude 1: 24  Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy...
May God help me, my family, and all of us to be ready for His soon coming.  To be His awaiting Bride without Spot or Wrinkle! =)

Wonderful words! We were just in camp meeting this weekend where that seemed to be the heart cry of all 3 speakers-- that was mentioned over and over. Lord, keep us on the narrow path. We MUST make it to Heaven!!!

Cousin Heather,
I am so very touched and feel blessed that you have been praying for my parents. I am thankful to report that Dad received the very best care during his hospital stay and Mom has been able to feel much better. Our God is so mighty and we are thanking Him for giving us more time with Dad. With time and cardiac therapy, Dad should make a full recovery.

Thank you for lifting my family up to our Heavenly Father and thank you for your gentle reminder about our daily need to grow closer to Him,
Cousin Nina
